I decided to use lemon with by third colour this week - the downside of this I didn't have lemon lace or flowers. To overcome this I died my lace with  Distress Inks Mustard Seed - yellow hands will wash of before long - I'm sure!!!
Colouring flowers with Copics was easier although a little fiddling!!
I do love this sweet image although it is pretty big  - it does make colouring easier!!
The patterned papers have bee dragged from my 'bit box' I'm trying (not very well) to used up everything I can't  throw out before I pack to take back to the UK- wish me luck!!!
